  I absolutely love Pilot..., January 20, 2014
I absolutely love Pilot Metropolitans. You can call them an entry level pen all you want, this fountain pen is AWESOME and for fifteen bucks, frankly, a steal.

Taupe (like a bronze, or even gun-metal with gold mixed in) is a very elegant color and way less boring than black (don't get me wrong, I also like black, but everybody offers black).

But my favorite part is that I can just grab a Pilot Plumix or Pilot Penmenship, swap nibs and turn this into an italic or EF nib pen (and, if you take the Metro nib and put it back on the donor pen, you now have TWO pens).
  I bought both the Metropolitan..., June 26, 2014
I bought both the Metropolitan and the penmanship intending on swapping the nibs. After trying both the medium nib and the extra fine in the penmanship I'm not going to change them. The Metropolitan is great the way it is. The medium nib is very smooth and not too wide. Waterman Serenity blue was the first ink in the Metro and currently a Pilot black cartridge is in it. Both have been very smooth with no skipping or false starts. I have tested both inks on a cheap Mead lined writing pad with no bleed through and very little shadowing from either. The metropolitan is so nice that my next pen will be a fine point metro just because I'm so pleased with this one.
